Marijuana is less lethal than alcohol, in addition to the fact that Marijuana has vauluable theraputic uses. Our money to combat this harmless substance could be better spent.

Each year the American government spends billions of tax payer’s dollars on the war on pot, fact. I support the legalization of marijuana because it creates less harm then alcohol, proven fact. And by legalizing it billions more tax payers money could go to use on useful things like S.S. and Medicare, where money is shorted. And return we could buy or pot from the government they can tax us, everyone is happy.

The government needs to do a better job at convincing the American voters if they want to continue on with this failed prohibition of marijuana. They claim that the 'plant' is dangerous and deadly, yet they can't provide any proof or credible evidence to back these claims up. If you want to know the FACTS about marijuana then click on the link below.

If you have too take prescription drugs for a illness they cause ALOT of side effects which are very painful and hard too deal with at times and the doctors never tell you the side effects . And you can die from pills. They are the biggest drug dealers in the world and marijuana does not make people do violent crimes, and helps ease alot of side effects and perhaps even help you have too not take as many pills for alot of illnesses.

Marijuana has many medical benefits from anxiety to arthritis without the side affects that pills have. Its just common sense that growing your medication is safer and healthier than pharmaceutically made drugs.

This plant has many other uses besides smoking it. If people wouldn't be so anal about it we would have another cash crop on our hands and at the same time taking millions of dollars out of the drug-lords hands in the process.

End Costly and Destructive War on Marijuana - Relatively Harmless Drug Should Be Legal

By Walter Simpson

Click here to download a PDF of this article

Over 100 million Americans have tried and used marijuana including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Clarence Thomas, Al and Tipper Gore, Newt Gingrich, John Kerry, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sarah Palin, Howard Dean, George Pataki, and Michael Bloomberg. You could probably add to that list most rock musicians, Hollywood celebrities, many high school and college students, a majority of baby boomers like myself, and quite a few police officers and judges who now enforce laws against marijuana.

A recent Rasmussen poll revealed that 43% of Americans say that marijuana should be legalized, and 65% predict it will be legal in ten years. Gallop polls show that support for marijuana legalization has grown from 25% in 1995 to 46% in 2010. And last month Californians almost voted to legalize of marijuana use by adults in the Golden State.

California Proposition 19 failed by a 46 to 54 margin but the measure won the support of a greater percentage of voters than any previous state marijuana legalization referendum, received more votes than Meg Whitman’s $160 million campaign for Governor, and had union, civil rights, and law enforcement support. The measure might have easily won if greater financial backing had been found, more young adults had bothered to vote, and certain provisions were drafted differently.

Significantly, just before Election Day, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger took the wind out of Prop 19’s sails by enacting a state law that makes possession of up to an ounce of marijuana an “infraction”-- like a parking ticket -- rather than a “misdemeanor.” This is similar to New York law which makes possession of less than an ounce of marijuana punishable by up to a $100 fine for the first offense.

So at least in progressive states like New York and California, marijuana possession penalties have been reduced. Decriminalization is good but legalization – which would also address production and sales -- would be better.

Popular culture accepts marijuana and most people who have tried it will say privately that the prohibition against “weed,”“cannabis,” or “pot” is unjust, unwarranted, or downright silly. Yet, in 2009, 850,000 Americans were arrested on marijuana charges and 88% of those just for possession. Our treatment of marijuana doesn’t make sense but fortunately change is on the horizon.

Meanwhile cigarettes are directly related to 423,000 deaths every year with 49,000 of them non-smokers, many of those being&#65279; kids. Makes me sick.
